Romney vs. Democrats: War over emails escalates

Washington (CNN) – No one is accused of breaking the law. And who considers a spat about hard drives and emails sexy?

But the chair of the Democratic National Committee charged Mitt Romney's staff with "unconscionable" acts, and the Romney team accused the Obama administration of being willing to "say and do anything to hold onto their power."

Democrats target Republicans on 'zeroing out' policy

(CNN) - National Democrats hammered GOP presidential hopefuls over foreign policy on Wednesday, arguing that three major candidates aim to cut all foreign aid to Israel.

The Democratic National Committee teamed up with President Barack Obama's re-election campaign to target Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich and Rick Perry for saying they would start all foreign aid commitments at "zero," then force governments to prove why they should earn assistance from the United States.

The Florida congresswoman pushed back against the claim that Democrats lost the recent special election in New York's heavily Jewish 9th district because Jewish voters are disenchanted with the president's Middle East policy.

More jabs between RNC and DNC

(CNN) - Chair of the Democratic National Committee, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, wrote a letter to Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus Thursday responding to an earlier request from the RNC that Attorney General Eric Holder investigate an "apparent" crime by President Obama.

Priebus accused the president Monday of misusing the White House Map Room to record a fundraising video. A White House spokesman noted the room is part of the White House residence, and therefore not subject to the restrictions placed on official rooms.
